Besides working or illegalism, For food you can dumpster dive food , start or go to a fnb or soup kitchen. When I buy food usually I just steal a few of the most expensive items.

If you want to learn more commune related skills I would suggest going on workaway.info. its a place where you can find work exchanges (farming, art, construction, etc) for food and board and a lot are at communes and you can learn alot from volunteering there. Just make sure you don't volunteer for someone who wants to treat you like your slave!

If you can play the violin consider starting a band! It might be tough to make it with that but but it'll help to be in a group and build a good support network :)

Yes you're right but I doubt they will end up pursuing those careers after highschool. Those jobs would serve the state , supporting military and police force... But they are young and they most likely want to pursue those careers because they think it would help people , for the adventure , etc. Whatever the reason it most likely won't be fulfilled in the job like they imagine ( not the adventure on crime tv shows ) it but can be fulfilled in other ways! Which in time I hope they will find.

hi Anarcopolis organizers come in all types and sometimes the best ones are the are good listeners not the stereotypical leader type with a megaphone... if you want start out you don't have to start a group right away... it could be something as simple as a documentary viewing or ask a cafe or bookstore if you can set up a free zine shelf ! Doing things like that helped me meet more people in my town to organize with. I used to be really shy and I know it's scary at first but like any skill you will get better at it the more you do it :)

My friends.. two in particular. They're both over a decade older than me and have taught me a lot. Never experienced the level of respect for my self autonomy until I met these people and they introduced me to anarchy. My chosen family :) I learn so much just by talking to them and they teach me a lot of skills with computers and all kinds of stuff. ! We work together help each other and our communities. There are a lot of great authors , and activists out there but having people by my side to put this knowledge into action is he most inspiring thing I can think of.

permanently deleting my account is the only thing that has worked to stop my facebook addiction. Other than deleting your accounts, deleting aps, you can also install an ap that locks you out of certain aps for a certain time period. I forget what it's called but I'm sure its not that hard to find. Also sometimes I use an ap made to prevent you from drunk texting to stop looking at my phone.

I am so sorry that this happened to you and it's gross that this happened. If this happens again I would suggest firmly telling her to stop and back away. I've learned to say STOP. I DO NOT LIKE THAT. Really loud so that it embarasses the person and step back. If she doesn't stop you can push her off you without hurting her.

To look at this from a feminist perspective .. it's actually a by product of patriarchy that men are expected to like every sexual advance. Men learn that from other men and women learn it from men too. Men use their sexuality and women's sexuality to oppress women. I'm sexually harassed almost everyday by men.

Feminism isn't thinking that women are perfect angels who can do no wrong. It's understanding that women are human beings who's existance is not to serve men. If you think women are always good and always victims sorry that's not feminism...

Masturbation is natural and healthy.

But watching too much porn can rewire your brain so that it makes is hard to have a healthy sexual relationship with someone because your brain is overstimulated and you aren't in reality anymore. But you can still maturbate without porn lol.

If you have a problem try getting some help ... Read self help books or see a therapist but don't shame others for masturbating or promote not masturbating at all...

I have hated every boss I've ever had except one. I feel no sympathy for them ! Even the so called family business fuck their paycheck and their kids piano lessons. They wanted me to chase shoplifters out of the store lol. And told me I had to buy a coffee for my mean coworker to make her like me . wtf
